Director Bong Joon-ho’s Oscar-winning film Parasite may have paved the way forward for South Korean – or even Asian – cinematic but that is not all. Ramdon, the noodles that Chung-sook cooked at the request of the wealthy housewife Yeon-gyo has also become a hot topic with netizens (including Michelle Phan) re-creating them at home.
Ramdon is the combination of udon and ramen, a dish that made its appearance in one of the most nerve wrecking scenes in Parasite.
Global release of instant ramdon noodles
Picking up on the craze, South Korean food company Nongshim has announced that they would be launching an instant version of the sirloin noodles.
Though an official release date is not confirmed, Nongshim revealed that there will be two flavours – “‘Angri-Chapaguri Big Bowl” and “Zapramdomaguri Big Bowl”.
Appearance of “ramdon” in Parasite
In the scene, the Kim family was seen indulging in food and alcohol in the Park’s family mansion as the latter went on a camping trip, when Yeon-gyo (aka Mrs Park) suddenly called Chung-sook to prepare a bowl of ramdon with steak as they were approaching home.
